Spring Soccer

We're in the middle of spring soccer and the boys are having a ball. Aiden is playing soccer for his first time ever. The best part??? He's on the same team as his cousins' Blake and Ty and his Uncle Matt is the coach. How fun! I haven't gotten pics of the boys in their uniforms yet, hope to this week. But Todd, Drew and I played with the camera and got some decent action shots. It's still killing me not being able to crop my pics. Good news is, I think our downstairs computer survived the flood....the hard drive and cords were on the wet carpet. Todd got it all hooked back up so I can start using it again. Yippee!

Anyway, Aiden LOVES playing goalie and I have to say, he does a good job of it. He gets almost every ball that comes his way. Here he is throwing it back out into the field. Don't you love those little goals??

I'm not sure what he's doing here. That's him in the blue right next to the ball but he doesn't seem to be going for it. Hmmm. When he's not playing goalie, he runs around the field a lot, picks dandelions, plucks fistfulls of grass, and occasionally goes after the soccer ball. It's all a learning process I tell myself.Here's my nephew Blake going after the ball. Look at that fierce determination on his face! Love it!

This is kind of blurry, but once again, Blake is going after that ball. You can tell he's 5 compared to some of the 3 year olds. He's got this game figured out!!

My nephew Ty getting some advice from Coach Dad.

Here's Noah (green shirt) going after the ball at his game. I'm really seeing him get more aggressive on the field this year and he does a great job of playing his position.

There's Noah on the far right heading towards the ball.

I'm sure more soccer pictures will be coming!
We have a busy weekend planned. We're headed to Charleston IL tomorrow for the weekend to see my youngest brother graduate from college. We're looking forward to getting away and I'm excited to see my brother get ready to head into the next phase of his life. We'll have the laptop with us for the boys to watch DVD's so hopefully I can get a wireless connection somewhere!!
Have a great weekend.

Have to make one of those soccers games-Matt must have the patience of......I cant believe I am using patience and Matt in one sentence! The kids are so cute at this age with soccer-but I really like going to the real games as they get older!

Have fun this weekend! Wish you'd be in Quincy so you could go out with us. Maybe another time I guess.

I won a book on the chic blog! I credit you with my win due to the fact that I found the site from your blog :)

I love those little soccer goals. I'm excited to get Annika into soccer for her first time this summer. She's looking forward to it too.

How great is it that so many cousins are out there enjoying soccer together...and the Coach is so impartial!!!!

Have a wonderful weekend with Nate...tell him how proud of him we are...drat and darn we can't be there, but I know he understand. Son trumps Godson, but only by a tiny bit!
